ZIM Piraeus Successfully Unloads, Moves On to Next Port of Call #BlockTheBoat = #EpicFail

Despite their best efforts, BDS anarchists didn’t succeed in blocking the ZIM cargo ship from unloading, as the Piraeus successfully unloaded its cargo overnight, a few hours after docking, and moved on to its next port of call.

The ship cast off at 8:45am California time.

Unfortunately for Oakland’s port, their reputation has been seriously harmed, and they are looking unreliable to the cargo companies.

The Jihadi supporting protesters are claiming financial losses to ZIM by the delay they caused, but most likely the ZIM ship is properly insured, in which case ZIM will suffer no losses at all.

In 2011, Occupy Oakland managed to close the entire Oakland port for a few hours, causing 4 million dollars in losses.

Unless Oakland port find a solution to their protester problem, there is a good chance that ZIM will find safer ports to do business with, and other concerned cargo firms will follow.

That certainly won’t be good for Oakland’s economy or investment in the port, but that may also be one of the protesters’ goals.
